University of Gdansk

History

The University of Gdansk was founded on 20 March 1970. It was formed from an amalgamation of two institutions of higher education: the Higher Economics School in Sopot and the Higher Pedagogical School in Gda?sk. Later, it also included the Higher Teacher Training School.

Education

The University of Gdańsk cooperates with institutions of higher education in most countries in Europe and also with many countries around the world. Research and other activities are conducted within the framework of over one hundred international agreements with foreign partners. A series of  University institutes and departments have obtained, or are in the process of obtaining, the prestigious status of centres of excellence, which is the European certificate and stamp of quality. The numerous foreign placements undertaken by the University’s academic staff  help them to offer students a modern and open education.

Research

Among the successes of the University of Gdańsk has been its participation in the special programme by the Foundation for Polish Science – International Research Agendas, based on creating innovative centres of excellence in Poland with the co-operation  of the best researchers from the entire world. The University of Gdańsk has won the programme twice, receiving 76 million PLN to create two agendas – the International Centre for Cancer Vaccine Science, which will be headed by two world-class researchers, Prof. Ted Hupp and Prof. Robin Fahraeus, and the International Centre for Theory of Quantum Technologies (ICTQT), with Prof. Marek Żukowski as Director.
